It is how I have tried to manage/control my fear. Just for today, I can practice relying on my Higher Power* for a more accurate perspective and to recognize that the "stories" I make up are just that.
I can pause now and become aware that I am fully immersed in my Higher Power's/God's Loving Presence and I can see myself and my life events from that perspective.
Today I am going to practice recognizing and suspending the rehearsed "stories" I try to tell myself.
I am going to pause, and breathe deeply. "Higher Power in" and then exhale, "everything else out".
